Gambler loses money, jumps to his death

A Thai man jumped from the fifth floor of his hotel on Tuesday afternoon after losing money at a casino in Poipet city in Banteay Meanchey province.

Poipet city police chief Um Sophal said Phaisanthamthara Thankorn, 36, from Bangkok, was a regular at the casinos in the town near the Thai border.

He is believed to have committed suicide to escape his gambling debts. Poipet city authorities handed his body over to his family after forensic tests had confirmed that there were no suspicious circumstances.
